Free agent outside linebacker Trevor Scott was in Philadelphia on Thursday. Scott registered 3 sacks for the Patriots last year in a rotational role behind Rob Ninkovich and Chandler Jones. At 6’5″, 255, he has the length and athleticism to be an effective edge rusher. The 28-year-old had his best seasons as an Oakland Raider, where he registered 12 sacks in his first two NFL seasons.
The Eagles did not draft an edge rusher, so it makes sense to sign a veteran behind Connor Barwin, Brandon Graham, and Trent Cole.
